The Quiet Woman

The Quiet Woman

John Gilling (1950)

U Certificate


Our Score
John Gilling was a vital cog in the conveyor belt that churned out quota quickie-style films in the 1950s. He wrote and directed this feeble thriller, which seems to have been arrived at by rearranging the basic plot elements of Jean Renoir's The Woman on the Beach and depositing them haphazardly in the Romney Marshes. Jane Hylton stars as the woman whose fresh start is threatened when her jailbird ex-husband arrives on her doorstep demanding shelter. Romantic entanglements and a smuggling subplot can't save the picture from sinking deservedly into the mire.
